I am buying a leasehold property in Desborough - what do I need to know?
Purchasing a leasehold flat in the UK can be complicated. The many potential traps awaiting an uninformed buyer can include legally technical issues like unreasonable managing agent fees and unreasonable lease extension premiums.
Your solicitor will look into all potential issues with the lease and report back to you.
Could the sale of a leasehold property be delayed?
Yes. The conveyancing for selling a leasehold house or flat can result in long delays.
The buyer's conveyancer will want to see these documents, like a copy of buildings insurance for the common parts of the property and three years' filed accounts for the property management. Typically, delays are due to the time required by your solicitor to get these documents together.
Your solicitor should start this process as soon as possible, as these details could take several weeks to collect if the agent responsible for managing the property is slow or difficult to contact.
